Dinner with Daphne & the Queens of Country

Nov 20 2019

As the sun set and the stars peaked out on a gorgeous fall evening, members gathered at The Daphne for our Glenfiddich Whisky Dinner with Daphne & the Queens of Country! As guests arrived, each donning their finest cowboy boots, bolo ties, and Dolly Parton hair, they were greeted with a warm southern hello and a neat pour of Glenfiddich 15.

Guests toured the 1892 three story iconic home, whisky in hand, taking in the marvelous pink walls, ornate decor, and over the top details that would make any queen proud! Before dinner, as everyone enjoyed mint juleps on the lawn under the soft pink string bulb lights, a surprise guest made an appearance on the terrace. Our very own Queen… Drag Queen that is!

The group two-stepped their way into the main dining room for a multi course dinner with Chef Rachel Lomas’ award winning gumbo as the main event. Before moving back out to the patio for a dessert of blackberry dumplings and Glenfiddich hot toddies served in vintage tea cups, the guests sang along to a final performance of Dolly Parton’s iconic “Jolene”.

As the fabulousness came to a close, guests raised a final toast with Glenfiddich 23 year Gran Cru, celebrating the glamour, gaud, and glitz of the evening!
